NZD/JPY Technical Analysis

Notably, NZD/JPY is now close to its 20, 50 and 200 day averages, located at 70.3815, 69.8855 and 68.5695 respectively, and thus may be at a key juncture along those timeframes. As for the alignment of the moving averages, well, it’s a bit mixed up; the 20, 50, 100, and 200 do not progress from largest to smallest, or vice versa. The closest is the 50 day average, which is 7.5 pips away. The clearest trend exists on the 90 day timeframe, which shows price moving up over that time. For additional context, note that price has gone up 7 out of the past 14 days. Oh, and one last thing: if you trade off of candlesticks, note that we’re seeing pin bar pattern appearing here.
